Royal Flying Doctor Service - Alice Springs, Central Australia

The Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) has launched its new, state-of-the-art tourist attraction in Alice Springs, bringing something special and interesting for both locals and international visitors.

For those who have visited the former Royal Flying Doctor Service Tourism attraction and museum, the new 3 million dollar upgraded facility will knock your socks off, with its state-of-the-art upgrade.

Opened by the Northern Territory Administrator, Her Honour the Honourable Sally Thomas AM, the highlights of the Royal Flying Doctor Service Alice Springs Tourist Facility are:

  • Stunning aviation themed entrance;
     
  • 70-seat theatre;
     
  • Full-scale replica of an operational PC-12 aircraft – giving everyone the chance to sit inside an RFDS plane;
     
  • Interactive touch-screen portals;
     
  • Observe the coordination of 'real time' medical evacuations;
     
  • Official RFDS-RM Williams co-branded merchandise;
     
  • Expanded café with indoor and outdoor dining; and
     
  • Function hire and conference facilities.


 
The museum provides an in-depth history of the vision of John Flynn, the 'mantle of safety' for the people of the bush, and how it evolved into the Royal Flying Doctor Service we know today.

Other information:
Reverend John Flynn
John Flynn Historic Reserve

Visitor to the facility will learn about this unique service. See how we provide routine medical services to outback isolated areas — towns, communities and homesteads. There are informative video and an amazing presentation where you can observe the coordination of 'real time' medical evacuations, live on screen as they happen. Visitors can enjoy interactive museum, as well as purchase from a great range of quality souvenirs, with the knowledge of all profits going to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

The café now has expanded areas offering both indoor and outdoor seating in one of the town’s finest heritage buildings.

All areas of the facility is accessible, providing access for those in wheelchairs.

The Royal Flying Doctor Service is a non-profit organisation, with 100% of proceeds going towards replacement of medical equipment and aircraft.

The opening of this new and upgraded tourism facility, follows the official opening of the new $3.1 million RFDS Aeromedical Base in Alice Springs in March last year to provide health care excellence for Central Australian communities.
